A Good Deal

I was in Hobby Lobby last week looking for a few new picture frames.  I always hit the clearance areas, though, before I leave.  This day I found my good deal in the fabric clearance bin. Child size aprons!

There were two plain natural canvas aprons and one white one with a ruffle and a pocket.  They were just put in there with no wrapper or tags.  Knowing that would just cause an issue at the register, I asked the woman working at the fabric counter about them.  I got the three for $3.25! They are being modeled by my little assistant.

The white ruffle one will be for my granddaughter and I am embellishing the other two for sale in my Etsy.  This is just one of the projects I’ll be working on this week.

What a fun find, Kathy. You just reminded me that I have not yet been to the new Hobby Lobby! (It's a 45 min. drive, so I have to plan to go.) BTW, I'm looking forward the progress on your granddaughter's room.

LOVE THAT DEAL! It is always easieer to get someone in the dept to price something than it is to go through a hassel at the counter, isn't it? That ruffled one is just darling! xo Diana

The ruffled one is adorable Kathy and I bet your granddaughter just loves it. Can't wait to see the other two you embellish. Enjoy your evening, Gail

I love the ruffled apron, so cute. Make a pattern from it, I am sure it would be a good seller, esp personalized with the name. You can do that! :)
